Girl Scout Recruiting Event this Wednesday at Bellevue Library

Girl Scouts is having a free recruiting event this Wednesday at the Bellevue Library. Bring your child and they will enjoy a fun activity while you all learn more about Scouting. I’m a former Girl Scout (2nd-12th grade) and a parent volunteer running a multi-level troop at Cherry Crest Elementary and the Girl Scout program is such a wonderful inclusive and fun space for girls to connect, grow, and learn! If you have any questions about Girl Scouts on a personal level, feel free to reach out!
